Rowdy Roddy Piper

My Neck Is BROKEN!!!

Wrestling icon Rowdy Roddy Piper says doctors at UCLA are about to slash his neck open and take a hammer and a chisel to his neck bones ... after discovering he's been wrestling with a BROKEN NECK.

57-year-old Piper went to his Twitter and explained he had been experiencing neck pain for quite a while -- but didn't think it was a big deal. In fact, he says he was WRESTLING through the pain for the past couple of months.

But Piper says he got an MRI recently -- and when the docs saw the results, they went into "911 mode" -- and scheduled a surgery as quickly as they could.

"So just for the record," Piper explains, "I beat, The Miz, Terry Funk, and 2 others guys with a broken neck!!"

Piper says he's going under the knife in just a few hours -- but tells his fans, "There [sic] using all the smarts they have at UCLA. I SAY BRING IT ON! CUT DEEP!!! I'M NOT AFRAID!!"

It's like what happened to Bruno Sammartino when he was forced to wrestle Stan Hansen in Shea Stadium in late August 1976, when his broken neck was not fully healed (his wife objected to this, but Vince McMahon wanted him to do it because the box office receipts in the then WWWE were low). I hope Hot Rod takes the wise step and lays low for awhile after his surgery. Get well, rowdy one!!!
